We loved how cute the cabin was and how quiet it was. We really had our own privacy. We could relax and enjoy the snow on the Christmas day. We loved how they arranged the bed upstair too, it was very comfortable. We'd love to come back just to chill and relax when we have a chance!

Oh my goodness! We arrived on a snowy night and felt like we were walking into Narnia so beautiful were the woods. Kit went above and beyond what we could have expected from a host when he helped pull our car out of the deep snow on the side of his driveway.

I can well imagine why writers choose this lovely place and sweet cabin for retreats. I only wish we had been staying longer than a night.

We absolutely loved our stay at Owl Creek Cabin! The cabin had excellent privacy, all of the amenities you could need, was very adorable, and had such a relaxing atmosphere. If you're looking for a cute cabin in the woods, book this listing!

Kit is a friendly, attentive host that puts a lot of effort into making this cabin a true retreat from the outside world.

There is no cell signal in the area, so satellite internet is provided at the cabin. It works well enough to video chat people and run typical browser-based apps.

It is in a beautiful forest with all of the modern amenities you'd expect.

Excellent location close to mountain lakes and PCP. Cabin is very private and very comfortable. It is set way back in the wood's with lots of wildlife. We wish we could have stayed longer. Kit is a great host. We will be back and recommend to friends and coworkers

Wow, this cabin has had a lot of upgrades since our last visit 2 years ago. The additional room, sofa, and larger deck make the cabin feel much roomier with plenty of space for gear. But the best addition is the outdoor clawfoot tub which was super relaxing for a nighttime soak. The cabin is quiet, and nicely outfitted — it’s obvious that Kit and Chris pay attention to adding features that their guests will enjoy. This was the perfect stop on our way from Ashland to Crater Lake and Bend. We enjoyed breakfast (suggested by Kit) at Lake of the Woods restaurant and a hike along the lakeshore. We’ll be back the next time we’re in Oregon.

This cabin is MAGICAL! Very clean, very private, and very romantic. My fiancée and I stayed here for our 3 year anniversary and we can’t wait to come back! The pictures on the post are beautiful, but there’s nothing like seeing it in person. So many special touches, from the flameless candles to the vase of red roses. The fan was powerful when it was hot out, and the heater work wonderful during the cold night. The soaking tub looked amazing, we just didn’t end up using it. The drive up was beautiful, and there is so much wildlife to see! Peaceful is an understatement. The host was very polite while wearing a mask and showing us around the cabin. We’ve been telling our friends all about our stay!!

We came for “fresh air” as the listing claimed yet were surprised to find the toilet emitted a strong foul odor through the cabin and even outside. Be aware that this particular composting toilet requires a bit of maintenance each day. There’s no kitchen sink so you’re left to use the bathroom sink for kitchen duties which is unsanitary and inconvenient. Upon our arrival, Kit informed us that the nearby Howard Prairie Lake was recently drained as if it was no big deal. One of the main reasons we chose the rental was to walk across the street to enjoy the lake. The place looked like it hadn’t been deep cleaned in a long time. Grime on most surfaces we wiped. The tub didn’t work for us as the drain plug repeatedly leaked. Furthermore, the much needed night-lights by the tub weren’t operable.

After our stay, we brought all of this to Kit’s attention, yet he denied all of it saying he delivers everything as promised. I hope other renters don’t run into the same situation in the future. We’re still trying to figure out why all the reviews are positive.

Response from Kit, the Host, on August 11th, 2021

I want all guests to have an exceptional experience at our cabin, Jai, and, because you didn’t, I refunded half of your booking fee for the three days you stayed. When I checked out each of your complaints about the cabin, I didn’t find the problems you noted nor did the guests just before and after your visit. We maintain the Nature’s Head composting toilet on a regular schedule, and believe me, we stay on top of it for the concerns you mentioned. We provide a bus tray for dirty dishes which we run through the dishwasher and don’t expect guests to wash their dishes in the bathroom sink. The cabin is cleaned, swept and mopped between visitors. Because of the drought, many lakes in southern Oregon and northern California are dry or low. I can see though, that Google maps still shows water in Howard Prairie and you could have that expectation, so I’ve removed any mention of water sports from our listing and instead direct people to Lake of the Woods, 18 miles away, for water sports and swimming — it’s a clear, gorgeous lake that people really enjoy.
